Mr CALDER (Northern Territory) - In speaking in support of this motion 1 once again commend the Government for its planning in this area which the honourable member for Adelaide (Mr Hurtford) has referred to as an undeveloped area. I might add that yesterday I noticed a report that Alice Springs is to get a second power station. The Public Works Committee, which is an all-Party Committee, will journey to Darwin before Christmas to look at 2 or 3 more projects. I commend the Chairman and members of that Committee for going up there at this lime and also for the reference to the antipollution measures which will be taken into consideration in the construction of the extensions. The power house is situated on the south-east side of the town and during the winter period the prevailing winds come from the south-east. The fumes are liable to be blown over the town and I urge that every measure be taken to prevent this from happening in the city of Darwin and also elsewhere in the Northern Territory.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
